All Gender Restrooms


An all gender restroom is one where the signage is visibly identified with open, inclusive language, not just 'male' or 'female'. It's evident these facilities are void of gender identity and have accommodations that are especially sensitive to the needs of a greater range of people. 

The availability of all gender restrooms is a privacy issue in the broadest sense. Single-person, all gender restrooms provide privacy to any individual who requires it, no matter their reasons. All gender restrooms are the best solution to ensure access and to eliminate barriers for all persons, no matter what their gender identity, ability, health status, sexual orientation, etc.
